Zoe February Challenge "One for the men"

Good morning Lovelies! My second DT post for today, this time Cards Galore the theme this month is "One for the men"

I have scheduled this post as I'm away in Malaysia on my holidays so I hope it's posted on time? I haven't had a holiday for nearly 2 years so I'm certainly ready for it! We've had a pretty tough time lately as our little foster girl moved onto adoption on 17th jan after 22 months with us! Hopefully I will return home refreshed and ready to give my heart away to another needy baby?

So onto my card, 8x8, I started with Kraft card, which I used a SplodgeAway mask of cogs and sprayed with lime green and blue Dylusions spray inks, then I stamped all over with black soot DI a script background stamp, I embossed the metal floor mask also from SplodgeAway then swiped over with green Distress stain, the next layer is again DI in green and stamped with Tim Holtz Stampers Anonymous stamps, the topper is a free stamp set that came with a mag, which again I inked with green, blobbed some water and blotted to create some interest then stamped and inked in black soot DI, I added a few little highlights using a white gel pen!

Thank you for visiting, I hope you join in this month, we had amazing response last month and we are very grateful to everyone who entered, what a fabulous start to 2013!
